How to stream MLS games on services outside the U.S.
Stream with DAZN
DAZN (20 CAD/month) provides most MLS games in Canada. The one limitation of this service is that it won’t broadcast games that are being carried by local broadcasters like TSN. It’s an especially good option for fans who value a long free trial and don’t follow a specific Canadian team.
Stream on Sky Sports
Sky Sports (22 GBP/month) is one of the official UK broadcasters for MLS games. Sky Sports is available to UK and Ireland residents only. You will also need to provide a valid postal code and a UK/Ireland credit or debit card. MLS on Sky covers at least two regular-season games each week, the All-Star game, and every MLS Cup Playoff game.
If you already have a Sky subscription, you can stream the content online via Sky Go. With a VPN, you can watch Sky Go privately and securely, and bypass bandwidth throttling from your ISP.
What is the MLS app?
Although you cannot live stream games with the MLS app, it’s a one-stop shop for most of your other needs as a fan. You can use the app to watch highlights, curate a customized feed of MLS content, and participate in fantasy games—as well as free-to-play contests.
Where can I find the 2022 MLS regular season schedule?
If you want to know what games are going on each week, you can find a complete schedule on MLS’s website.
